The vibrance of the ancient Egyptian life—from the dynasties to the masses—are captured in this volume, which also explores the political and social development of the region.

    Gr 5-8-These slim books provide enough information about the development, way of life, accomplishments, and decline of these civilizations without overwhelming readers. Maps; full-color illustrations and photographs, many full page; and sidebars provide additional focus. In Greece, the system of city-states, is explained. Literature, art, and architecture and their lasting influence are described in detail. Rome discusses the military expertise of Caesar and Pompey and the winning of the Punic Wars that led to world domination. The Romans' genius in engineering is highlighted with descriptions of the famous Appian Way and the aqueduct, the Aqua Appia. In Egypt, the use of the Nile and its influence on the development of this civilization is emphasized. From the very beginnings in agriculture to the development of a sophisticated irrigation system, the river was a significant factor in the formation of Egyptian civilization. The building of the great pyramids and the art of mummification are also mentioned. A detailed discussion of the everyday lives of the rich and the poor provide valuable insight. These books are good starting points for research or for students interested in learning about the ancient world.-Lana Miles, Jackson Elementary School, Rosenberg, TX
